Description:
On this version of Query Browser, pressing the minus and equals keys at the same time causes the application to hang and consume maximum processor time until manually terminated.

This bug cropped up sporadically, and I could never isolate what had caused the crash, until one time I realised that I had slightly missed the equals key and pressed the minus key as well.  I tested this theory by pressing both at the same time deliberately and it seems to consistently cause the crash.  Other key combinations do not seem to trigger this bug (or none that I have found so far).

Marked as serious, as anything unsaved is unrecoverable when it occurs.

How to repeat:
Press the minus and equal keys at the same time when the text editor component of query browser has keyboard focus.

Suggested fix:
Not familiar with source language for GUI tools, so have not checked.

As a quick update, this problem does not need the keys to be pressed simultaneously, but seems to occur whenever a minus follows an equals within the query editor component.  Perhaps an issue with the syntax highlighter?
